We stayed in this hotel a week ago, and I've been meaning to write a review ever since. The hotel itself is lovely, really well decorated and lots of nice touches. Food great as well - local and well cooked. My in-laws joined us for the evening and unfortunately my mother-in-law was taken ill as she arrived. At this point... More

We stayed at this hotel based on a friend's recommendation. It certainly did not disappoint. The bedroom was well appointed and clean, with a lovely view. The dining room overlooks the loch and the evening menu had a good range and was excellently cooked and presented. The staff were very friendly and eager to make our stay as comfortable as... More

This is a lovely, relaxed hotel with excellent food and very attentive staff. The rooms would benefit from an upgrade however were spotlessly clean and had everything you need for a comfortable nights sleep. The food is to die for, well presented, fresh and tasty. The staff are very friendly and attentive and couldn't have been more helpful. Take the... More

Return visit to this welcoming hotel. Beautiful surroundings excellent food. Extremely dog friendly and a well stocked bar with varieties of gin and malt whiskies which need more time to savour. Room was clean and bed very comfortable. We ate in both nights and enjoyed great food. All in all we can't wait to return.

Lovely hotel. Well modernised and a change from the usual. Great location and ideal for an early ferry to the wonderful island of Islay. Surprisingly Fine food with a local flavour. Comfortable and well appointed. That's why I'm booking in again.

My husband and I spent one night there last week as we we're on an early ferry to Islay. Although the hotel was in a great position the room was very small and the bathroom was tiny, luckily none of us are that big but if we had been then we would have had a problem getting into the shower... More

The West Loch Hotel is the most beautiful hotel set in the idillic settings within Argyll, with the most stunning views. We arrived early and given the warmest reception ever. Inside the hotel everything was bright and modern, as with our room, No8, to rear, twin, and very comfortable with the highest quality beds and linen. Breakfast served overlooking a... More

We booked based on the reviews which indicated 4-5's recently, but I feel this is more for food/public area ambience. The room (4) was nicely decorated and clean, with a large shower & bathroom, but was small, the bed was quite soft and unfortunately looked to the rear of the hotel, the wi-fi did not work in the room although...

Made very welcome when we turned up at 8.30pm on a Monday evening. Good food and cheerful unobstrusive service. Not made to rush our meal despite being the only people left. Will be back again soon. Great to chat with owners.
